Waiting For You ...



"There's nothing half so sweet in life
As love's young dream."
                          ~ Thomas Moore,
                                    Irish poet
                                        ~ 1779-1852

A spring sunset beckons as a bud brushes a
beautiful blossom while it waits for the bud to bloom on my favorite magnolia tree at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Hope Springs Eternal ...



"Hope springs eternal ..."
                          ~ Alexander Pope
                                ~ 1688-1744

Hope springs eternal, just as surely as
the daffodils bloom in the early spring.

I always fill with happiness like a child
when I see spring's first blooms.

This is the first daffodil bud I've seen this season, 
captured in mid-March a little more than 
a week before the official beginning of
spring, a time of hope, beauty and fresh possibilities.

Daffodil, Jonquil, Narcissus ... whatever 
name you choose, this bud says spring
is awakening at Trexler Memorial Park,
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Hope, like spring, is ever near.

Evening Kiss ...



"April love ...
Every star's a wishing star that shines for you,
April love is all the seven wonders,
One little kiss can tell you this is true."
                                                         
                                                  ~ "April Love"
                                                            ~ Theme song from the 1957 film "April Love"
                                                     ~ Music by Sammy Fain, lyrics by Paul Francis Webster
                                                               ~ Recorded by Pat Boone

Sunset light kisses this beautiful breaking bud
on my favorite magnolia tree on a beautiful
April evening at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Never My Love ...

"What makes you think love will end
When you know that my whole life
depends on you ...
Never my love ..."
                        "Never My Love,"
                               ~ The Association, 1967

The life of the rosebud is intertwined
with that of the rose in full bloom, which colors it with life
on a June day at 
the Malcolm W. Gross Memorial Rose Gardens,
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Stirring ...


"Love is the only flower that grows and blossoms
without the aid of the seasons."
                                                               ~ Kahlil Gibran

I love magnolia trees, and this breaking bud shows spring was stirring 
this weekend at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
